“A contented mind is a continual feast – what food group is missing?”
Okay. I know we are all really busy but I have to tell you — make some time. Mary Ruefle is one of America’s great contemporary poets. A thinker and artist who is a genuine inspiration. So much so I drove in snow to find her this winter in VT and recorded this podcast for the Scottish Poetry Library. Her poems are cracking, her erasures original, her thought process intriguing. She’s published by the great Wave Books in San Francisco. She is a Guggenheim fellow amongst other things. She read in New York at the Poetry Society of America last week. She’s awesome and I kinda love her. Have I said too much? Should I say more? I’ll shut up now. Seriously — listen.
